This past weekend was not supposed to be a about IKEA. It was supposed to be about shopping for cold weather clothes and maybe watching a terrible movie. Despite that, I ended up spending most of my Saturday at that magical place anyway. And I loved almost every second of it! Watch my HGTV dreams come to life, as well as some of the other, mildly less exciting things that I got up to over the weekend!
The Hunt Begins
As I said early, this weekend trip was not about going to IKEA. My roommate actually planned to go to Torrid to buy a new coat and I wanted to swing by a thrift store to buy a yellow sweater for my Halloween costume (any guesses as to who I might be?). She found not one, but two coats! I also did walk away with my new used sweater from the world’s worst Goodwill.
This is where the fun began! I had only been to IKEA one other time before with my parents and we didn’t even make it through the whole store. This time, I got pretty far, but I still didn’t go through the whole maze of furniture. I got hungry and had to take some shortcuts to make it to the meatballs!
After we left IKEA we headed over to Aldi to do some low cost grocery shopping. I like to grocery shop with a recipe in mind, so I spent a good 5 minutes in the salad aisle searching Google for a good recipe to take me through the week. I actually found this one for broccoli and potato soup from RecipeTin Eats. Personally, I think it could use more cheese, but it’s still a pretty good eat.
Late Night Snack
That night I was coerced into watching Tales from the Hood 2 with my roommate, which I did not like, but also did not hate as much as the original Tales from the Hood. I am generally not a fan of gore and horror and while neither movie is scary, they’re both just … a lot. I needed something sweet to bring me through it so I brewed up some tea and baked some cookies using this Desert for Two recipe. It’s supposed to make a batch for two people to share, but I’m greedy, so you already know how this went down.
What are your weekend plans?
